Thumbs up to The Land Newspaper for their Glove Box Guide to Mental Health. As a family who have been hit full force by the stigma (ignorance) attached to mental illness (I will never forget the day farmers turned their heads the other way when I walked into Landmark) every little bit helps.
Comments such as "he can come back but in a reduced capacity", "would be better if he was injured in a workplace accident than have depression", "he is unemployable", should never have to be heard.
The upside - life is beautiful and everyone's life is important.
Fight for it.
The result can be amazing.
And I will also forever remember the people who showed kindness & compassion, even if it was just a "how are you doing".
